14Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them. 17Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. 18Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone. 19Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,”#12:19 Deut 32:35. says the Lord. 20Instead, “If your enemies are hungry, feed them. If they are thirsty, give them something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals of shame on their heads.”#12:20 Prov 25:21-22. 21Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.
